How are Christians to live in such difficult times? Unique of all people, Christians are called to embrace a hopeful outlook on life. Mere Hope offers the core, Christ-centered perspective that all Christians share, and that Christians alone have to offer a world filled with frustration, pain, and disappointment. For those in darkness, despair, and discouragement, for those in the midst of trials, suffering, and injustice, mere hope lives. The spirit of the age is cynicism. When our leaders, our families, and our friends let us down at every turn, this isn't surprising. But we need another perspective; we need hope. Rather than reflecting resigned despair or distracted indifference, author Jason Duesing argues, our lives ought to be shaped by the gospel of Jesus-a gospel of hope.

"Jason G. Duesing narrates his compelling argument for the necessity of hope in this short essay on living in today's world. Duesing introduces the foundation of the audiobook in the first chapter, his sermonic delivery offering scripture and theological reasoning to call attention to the lack of hope in today's society. As the case for hope continues to be presented in five more chapters, listeners will find that Duesing's tone and pace rarely waver. A handful of times his delivery is marked with audible enthusiasm, specifically when he recounts memories of his own life. Though short in length, this pithy title sheds light on the cynicism many people encounter and offers hope through the knowledge of Christ. V.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
